Does conventional defecography has a role to play in evaluation of evacuatory disorders in Indian population?


Kumar, Sheo; Sharma, Pankaj; Andreisek, Gustav (2013). Does conventional defecography has a role to play in evaluation of evacuatory disorders in Indian population? Indian Journal of Radiology and Imaging, 23(1):92-96.

Abstract

Barium studies are one of the best investigations for evaluating submucosal and extrinsic mass lesions. However, barium studies bring less money, are operator dependent and one of the more difficult investigations for radiologists to master. Economic factors have acted as powerful disincentives for performing gastrointestinal (GI) fluoroscopy in most radiology practices. In this pictorial essay, we discuss the role of conventional defecography in evaluating evacuatory disorders in the Indian population
